investigation into the libya raid and the obama administration's response. the men also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state. describing rice as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the benghazi terror attack as a protest gone wrong. president obama and his first post election news conference yesterday fired back in sharp terms. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done xr exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmir much her reputation is outrageous. >> the republican senators were quick to respond. lindsey graham went on twitter and wrote the following. he said, "mr. president,
intelligence leaders didn't anticipate or repel theand the obama administration's public response. >> what is clear is that this administration including the president himself had intentionally misinformed, in fact lied to the american people in the aftermath of this tragedy. some republicans are criticizing u.n. ambassador susan rice. after the attack, she said intelligence pointed to a spontaneous attack... not a pre- planned one. president obama said the g-o-p should go after him instead former cia director david petraeus denied that his scheduled testimony over the september attack in benghazi, libya, had anything to do with his resignation, he told hln's kyra phillips. petraeus said that he never shared classified information with paula having an affair with. defense secretary leon panetta is ordering a review of defense programs to see if they are strong enough. a computer used by paula broadwell that was not secured contained classified information.broadwell's affair with former cia director david petraeus led to his resignation. national security officials tell "reuters" an inves

it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibly incompetent or did they mislead congress, or did they just simply not know. probably it's a little bit of all three. >> let's turn to suzanne kelly. the fascinating thing again today was the senators allowed in to see this video, this closed circuit television video, that included very disturbing scenes of ambassador stevens' last moments. but also, it seemed to clarify, didn't it, exactly what was going on in the buildup to this attack. there was no obvious sign, according to the senators who have come out publicly after this, of any protest. >> yeah. that's what we've been hearing from people who are in those hearings, piers, and you know, it's interesting because nobody has seen this video yet. it's actually still classified. they're not even really officially supposed to be talking about classified information but i know there's a push to get at least some of this video released publicly. you have to remember, it's going to be a bit tricky because it is still classified and it is still part of the ongoing fbi investigati
. subsequent to this we found out of day one, the obama administration, the intel community, even knew it wasn't video, it was the terror attack. why would petraeus do it? was there something held over his head where he said go out there and say video? otherwise we'll blow it wide open. that is a theory. >> greg: obama should arrest the director of "fatal attraction" and say it caused her to go after paula broadwell. maybe petraeus didn't want to say certain things in the testimony. >> dana: he finally said, if broadwell had the final interview the week before the election. can you manual wha imagine the t the f.b.i. who had to con front david petraeus. what it's like to say by the way, sir, we know you've been having an apair with the biographer, because there is another woman upset about it. i wonder if he knew all along. i don't believe he was given a polygraph test when he went to afghanistan, running afghanistan to being the c.i.a. director. i'm not sure if it's out of line, but it seems to me a problem. >> kimberly: there should be in terms of how they hand this, the protocol to go in an
by the obama administration to cover up what really happened in benghazi but if you watched any other news source over the past week, you wouldn't have heard these bizarre and counterfactual tales. the reason for this is my next guest will tell you those who get their news solely from right wing media are trapped in a bubble where no facts get inside. here to tell us about the g.o.p. bubble is bill maher the host of hbo's real time with bill maher. it is a genuine pleasure to have you on the show. >> always great to be with you. >> eliot: thank you. did reality and the fake reality of the right wing finally collide on election day and did karl rove melt down in front of us and show he couldn't deal with reality? >> i think that's what we saw there in real time to beg a phrase. on tuesday night. it was a pleasure to watch. yes, this was the last thing that could have done it to them. before this, there was always polling. they lived in their bubble. we had that bit as you pointed out on our show for oh, over a year. we woul

that president obama will try to dismantle the small business administration and help small businesses -- i would say within six months. as opposed to helping small businesses like he should be doing, i think he is going to harm small businesses. gerri: you think you'll be missed? what is your evidence? >> well, he has a bill in congress to allow him to combine agencies. for 30 years, anytime someone wants to close this, they have one solution. the commerce department. they are the federal agency for fortune 500 firms. it is for small businesses. it is a federal law that says 20% of all government contracts for small businesses. the big corporations have been lobbying to close it because they want the money. it's over $200 billion of per year. i predicted he would do that in 2008. gerri: we will keep our eyes open. i want to talk about the taxes that we have coming up in the fiscal cliff, which is where we started and what was discussed today with big business. here's what happens to small businesses and for tax hikes happen. first of all, we wipe out 710,000 jobs. hundred 10,000 jobs. in gdp jum

administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me j

11th attack on the u.s. mission in libya, his testimony now raises more questions about the obama administration's account in the days after the assault. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge reports from capitol hill. good evening. >> thank you, the former cia director is used to coming in the front door and today shunned reporters and entered the loading dock and briefed the house and senate intelligence committee. the former cia director was pushed to explain why today he said he believed it was terrorism from the start when on september 14th, according to a senior republican in the house, the directors emphasis was on the anti-islam film. >> his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, a terrorist involved from the start. i told him my questions i had direct questions. >> one democrat said the disagreements come down to a basic issue. >> the more significant issue was the element of planning and who was responsible and that wasn't clear. to what degree this was planned. >> a congressional source familiar with this w
, and the decimated by the obama administration she knew that there was a possibility based on the classified information that al qaeda at, at least thea, fill atwas very much involved with that. they're continuing to blame this on politics and not as extreme as what we heard from dana rohrabacher. >> and fran, just very quickly. we only have a couple of successes. what was your perception of rice's performance on the sunday talk shows? >> the talking points were not entirely accurate for the reasons they were classified and i think, look, she made the sound much clearer than the talking points than she was probably given. >> dana bash, fran townsend, appreciate it. coming up with more ahead. the ridiculous is up next. sadly, their brother's white christmas just got "blacked out."

our views the first obama administration and the second, too. however, i would contend that in most of my conscious lifetime, this is the most coherent the democratic party has been. i mean, compared to the republicans. the republicans are falling part and in complete, you know, clan war. whereas, as you had the previous democratic incumbent being the most impressive advocate for this democratic incumbent. whereas the republicans can't mention the guy who was their previous incumbent. and so i think -- >> george w. >> george w., yeah, who just, you know, didn't come within 1,000 miles of the convention or wasn't mentioned in the speeches. so i think that the democrats, they do have these tensions. but at least they can have some sense of a majority party, which they hadn't thought of themselves as for a long time. being able to say, "okay, how do we address the basically progressive narrative we have that's not just tax cuts and it's not just the top 1%?" >> before this campaign began, i picked up and reread your book you wrote many years ago on the press called "breaking the news,"
not to go in on the ground. the big difference this time is the obama administration that began to distance itself from israel. first term supporting israel. that is an interesting evolution on obama. hopeful one. >> chris: there are other differences, too. hamas has longer range missiles. middle east is different from 2012 of the middle east of 2008. the arab spring. run by the leaders of the muslim brotherhood. what are the challenges for israel and the u.s. now? >> if you look at the foreign policy portfolio that obama is facing. we still have problem of pakistan and iran. libya is not a stable situation. it only amplifies the problem. this is a dangerous world. it will get some hold on exactly what the policies are. what is the degree of toughness that we are going to employ? that is still in doubt. they held flurry of closed door sessions with the top administration officials. best as you can tell, because they were closed door, what did we learn about the administration actions before, during and after the attack? >> there were comments about whether it was a video or terrorist attack
candid over the three years of the obama administration about his weaknesses, his failures and his flaws. but a few months ago, you wrote that you saw obama improving and you thought he would be a better second term president. why? >> part of my argument is that everybody fails in the first term as president because it's too big a job. and so, you sort of reveal what the weakness is and what particular lack a president has. and we've seen some of those with president obama. i think one way in which he'll certainly be different is that he knows who he is dealing with now. the first two years of the administration, he thought that they were going to be able to make sort of a split the loaf deal with the current republican party. and they weren't interested in that. so i think he will have a firmer approach from the get-go. he now doesn't have to worry about reelection, as we all know. i think he's become more sophisticated as a judge of executive talent around him and just sort of knows what he is doing. you know, he spent four years making hard decisions, after no executive experience, es
that is not part of their job? the obama administration getting primed for spending taxpayer money to promote the president's health care law. the administration saying, well, we have to explain that law. we are not promoting anything. the republican congressman not quite buying it. the state of louisiana. he is leading this charge against the health and human services secretary to get to the bottom of what this money is being used for because it seems a little fishy. congressman, and joining us on the phone right now. have you heard anything from the secretary? >> well, we sent letters initially backed inmate, follow-up letters in august and we have received no information about the use of these tax bear dollars. we were completely ignored by the secretary, and that prompted the subpoena and conversations with the chairman on the ways and means committee. we felt that we need to know how these millions of taxpayer dollars being used for this purpose at a time when we are dealing with deficits, serious issues. the taxpayer deserves to know what these dollars are being used for. neil: you know
the obama administration spend yuyour tax money not just on health services, but p.r. to convince that you should you love obamacare? a house committee wants to know. they subpoenaed hhs committee chair kathleen sebelius. we have a panel here to discuss it. rick, what does the hill want? >> the hill wants to know what kathleen sebelius was spenning mono, and whether there was money proanted for hhs publicity, directed to improve the standing of the obama health care law. if it was spent on those purposes, it wasn't really doing its job. the obamacare is not nearly as possible as the administration wanted. i would also say, look, it is the law of land. as a political matter, this is a very legitimate inquiry, but have you more and more republicans saying, it's time to move on. i don't see this as a fruitful area to go through the things that happened in the last term. it is the law of the land. there is no point it try to repeal it as this jumpghture, right now. i don't know whati are going to accomplish. >> greta: apparently, gawp, correct me if i am wrong, one of the programs spent $20 mi
and negotiating. the obama administration want the two parties to sit down and negotiate. they don't want the palestinians going to the united nations vitallion the agreements that we already have which is going to make people angry on both sides. you're going to have unilateral measures on this side, on that side getting further away from the table. >> david they've been trying to negotiate for decades. what kind of negotiation is it when israel says i don't care, i'm going to continue to built settlements. >> let's look at the record. three years ago, we had a prime minister who made yet another proposal to hamas, which was conveyed by the american administration. it basically said you take back 93 94% of the west bank and gaza, the 6%, we will hold and we will in return give you swaps from inside israel for that 6%, we'll do arrangements for jerusalem and so on and so forth. the proposals have been made. the problem is there hasn't been a response. here we are all these years later without negotiations. proposals have been made you before that were fair, adequate, that could be improve
. i don't think we'll do that. i think the obama administration and members of congress from both parties will come out very strongly on the side of israel with this. but if they do go in on the ground, it could be a lot of body bags. and i think that may really create a challenge in terms of trying to reestablish peace and stability there and certainly looking towards any kind of a long-term solution. that doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon. probably not in the next four years. >> shep: mike barrett live in washington. thanks very much. continuing coverage throughout the hour and all weekend, of course. the former c.i.a. director, david petraeus, reportedly says he never gave any classified information to his mistress, paula broadwell. that's according to kyra phillips, an anchor and reporter for cnn for years. she says general petraeus told her his resignation had nothing to do with benghazi and that he wants to testify about the attack on the u.s. consulate. also he told kyra phillips he screwed up terribly and feels lucky to have a wife who is better than h

to israel because israel is allied with the united states and they expect the obama administration will come down hard telling israel to cool it. megyn: what are we going to do, what should we do? >> one of the things he ought not to do is threaten to cut off israeli spare partsr parts for the f-15 and f-16s. there if they have to take out these rocket installations it will reduce the effectiveness of reprisals. this is a wise move. they are getting ready to take out the iranian nuclear sites. megyn: what a situation. we were watching the u.s. presidential election and the indiscretions of general petraeus and the middle east was falling into war about it looks of it. ollie north, thank you. the president wrapped up a meeting with conscious at leaders in a four avoid a massive wave of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts that will kick in january 1 unless something is done. it ended with what looked like a big handshake between the president and john boehner. james rosen has the report live from the white house. hey, james. >> reporter: house minority leader nancy pelosi says congress wants
department first two years of the obama administration. but there's also a republican i'm going to mention here, richard haas. he's currently the president of the council on foreign relations, and he was a special assistant to president george h.w. bush, and during the administration of george w. bush, he served as the commissioner of policy and planning, same position as slaughter. he argues that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but it needs to become weaker. states should wont a weakened sovereignty, he says, ford to protect himselfs -- in order to protect themselves. i want to make one thing absolutely cheer clear. i'm not talking against international law in general or against international relations, and i draw a clear distinction between transnationalism and globalism and nationalism. there's nothing wrong with having international treaties. that means between nations. so the united states has a nato treaty. we get together with western europe, we're going to defend ourselfves, there's nothing wrong with that. same thing. i am criticizing in the book supernational,
months, the obama administration has proposed thousands of new government regulations. how those could affect you, your family, job and business. we ask a guest from the national federation of independent business next. sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most comm

i just made you that. we like your -- your take on this. the obama administration should model itself after the roosevelt administration during the great depression of world war ii. the head of goldman sachs -- >> not teddy roosevelt. you said the roosevelt. there were two of them. >> stephanie: could i get through this, please. jim knows. he's the official historian. the goldman sachs chief executive said in an opinion piece in the 1930s, there was extreme bitterness between the business community and the roosevelt administration. he wrote corporate executives deplore franklin roosevelt's policies. he said he welcomed their hatred. the two sides worked together spurring a colossal increase that lifted the u.s. out of the great depression. he sees a similar opportunity now once the obama administration and the corporate community compromise so as not to derail the recovery. there is more than a trillion dollars of cash sitting on the balance sheets of companies with certainty about tax rates companies wi
from an election to have a terrorist attack that will expose the errors in policy of the obama administration. that is why they were so worried under that theory about in many that, in fact, this was al qaeda or another terrorist group. megyn: some democrats who were privy to these briefings, including representative adam smith say that the notion that a talking points were changed is completely wrong. still, we get diametrically opposing information. thank you for being here. megyn: thank you we will speak with the israeli ambassador to the united nations about what is looking like a possible ground war in the city of gaza. stay with us. flavorboost.com. megyn: more breaking news on our top story today. israel reportedly closing a series of roads heading into gaza. that comes just moments after the reuters news service report. asking to mobilize some 70,000 israeli troops. just think about that. 75,000 israeli troops, in what is being called preparation to a likely invasion of that area. this is not good. this is not there, folks. earlier today, the first time since 1970, at l

in the assault. petraeus testifed the c-i-a told the obama administration an al-qaeda linked group was behind the attack. but, he claimed the white house changed this assessment. he added he knew an anti- islamic video didn't spark the assault... contradicting president obama and other white house officials. >> the ambassador's statement represented the best possible and for mission without jeopardize in classified information. ... the cia eventually approved the white house's decision to remove "al-qaeda" from the assessment, but didn't give a reason why. a lawmaker did ask petraeus if his affair had any impact on his testimony, and he said "no." the cia launches an investigation into petraeus. as we mentioned, petraeus suddenly resigned from the post last week... because he had an extramarital affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. the c-i-a says the purpose of its investigation is simple: to see if there are any lessons to learn from this scandal. attorney general eric holder said yesterday petraeus' affair didn't compromise national security. the context is a little clearer... abo
to find a safe haven because they know that the taxes are going to be higher than the obama administration is currently citing and they're afraid and they're terrified. >> that amounts to tax evasion, you move money off shore you've got to declare where it is and any income that you made on it. and are you telling us that rich folks are basically avoiding taxes? >> well, i think they're trying to be creative, like they always have been of the creativity makes the rich wealthy and that's what i found out over interviewing them over the last 30 years is that creativity is the best thing and i think they're trying to be honest about it, but creative. >> when does it come back to america? >> i don't know. it's a really good question, i'm asking them that and they don't know either. is america ever going to be the same? i don't know, four more years of both the obama administration, are we going to-- are we going to recognize this question after four more years, i hope so, i don't know. stuart: you're painting a pretty grim idea of the mood. it sounds like they're in despair. >> they are. there
exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of stocks last week. we watched it on the business side, but what do you make of that? >> obviously a disap
said if you look at states where obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw much bigger gaps. >> chris: senator bayh, you know, it's interesting because i was thinking of 2004 as welch pendulum swings back and forth. after 2004 when bush had issues, and he still won, democrats were disspirited. obviously four years later they came roaring back. what do republicans need to do? >> two elections i'm thinking of, chris, number one, four years ago 2008 when some parts of the democratic party said this is a vote for a new progressive era and left-leaning government. it turns out that wasn't quite the case. our party needs to be modest in the mandate we take away from it. we need togone from progressive center out. then 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrat just lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. what did we do? we nominated michael dukakis who is a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts. it took three beatings for to us realize you have to make common cause of moderates. that is the internal struggle the republican have to go through. true to pr
scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,

from a belly? people from 19 states have filed petitions from america. on the obama administration's we the people website. and some are close to getting the 25,000 signatures needed to require an administration response with texas a mere 600 short as of monday afternoon. it is particularly feasible for texas to withdraw from the union and to do so would protect the citizen standard of living and resecure their rights in accordance with the beliefs of our founding fathers that are no longer reflected by the federal government. so what do pandas make out of all of this? >> they don't know anything. they are stupid pandas. what do you make of this? some states can do this. some states can't. >> i think texas can pull it off. they are in a grown upstate. i think louisiana was a close second. they would be more like the high school kid that ran away from home and spend all of their money on booze and hung out with mississippi, got in trouble and they lived in texas for a little while until we took them back. >> you know, it is an interesting point. the idea creates an experiment in which yo

preaches to. so heading now into another four years of the obama administration, where are we and why are we here? how to get somewhere else? how do we live up to that promise? what went wrong -- what's going right in what can we do about it going forward? >> simple. first of all, i don't thing that the favorability ratings -- there we go. so i don't think favorability rating in the pew surveys are evidence of whether were doing something wrong or right and i think it's a huge mistake for anybody who practices public diplomacy to think his or her job is to win a popularity contest. so while i guess maybe some of us in the bush administration can take a certain pleasure at the fact that in 2008 the favorability ratings for the united states for higher in four out of the five surveyed air countries. i'm not even going to bring that up. but i do think it's a big mistake and in my view during my short tenure as undersecretary is to disabuse that notion and rather to focus attention on what public diplomacy can do to achieve specific ends that are part of -- that are close in foreign polic
. the only problem with moving the threshold from the perspective of the obama administration is that really reduces the amount of revenue that you are born to collect to pay down the deficit. makes the argument less meaningful because you do sacrifice a chunk of money. and you have to find the money elsewhere. host: water other sticking points as we talk about the fiscal cliff -- what are the other sticking points as we talk about the fiscal cliff? guest: the things that people agree on, we need to deal with the deficit. and that we would like to do corporate tax reform next year. the task to be extended for household income below $250,000. everything else is a sticking point. neither of these big questions about what can a government which should have, do we want a government that provides medicare and medicaid for everyone that needs it. how do we want to pay for that? had we want to tax people? what is the best way to stimulate the economy? there are all of these ideas floating around. many were litigated during the presidential campaign. they cannot quite a bit during the debate. we hea

terrorist attack in benghazi began today. republicans fired up over how the obama administration handled the tragedy by first reporting it was sparked by anti-american protests. former cia director david petraeus will testify behind closed doors. he went to benghazi to a investigate and both parties are hopeful he can clear up who knew what and when. meanwhile, petraeus made a first public remark since resigning last friday. he told a tv reporter he did not share any classified documents with paula broadwell. but officials found classified information on her home computer. classified, but not highly classifi classified. the fbi is investigating how she got them and if there's any wrongdoing. >>> guilty and ordered to pay more than two years after the worst oil spill in u.s. history. the largest criminal settlement in history announced today. bp pleaded guilty to 14 felony counts, including misconduct and neglect and is fined $4.5 billion. the fiery explosion of the deep water horizon in the gulf of mexico killed 11 crew members and caused crude oil to gush out of the well for months. shu
americans and how the obama administration dealt with it. when general petraeus first briefed congress, he said he believed the cia believed the attack stemmed from a protest. but today it's a different story. he said he believed it was a terrorist attack after the hearing this morning some republicans said they are very frustrated with the conflicting information. >> he also stated that he thought all along he made it clear that there was significant terrorist involvement. and that is not my recollection. >> petraeus resigned over an extramarital affair. he has insisted the affair did not put national security at risk and no classified information was shared. we will stay on this story for you this morning and have the latest on ktvu. reporting live from washington, d.c. alison burns ktvu channel 2 news. >>> time right now 6:19. more bart trains are needed because so many more people are riding bart. the san francisco examiner reports bart expects to have a half million passengers a day riding bart trains in the coming years. and bart is going to need about 880 train cars to carry them al

lawmakers he believed right away the libya assault was terrorism even though the obama administration blamed an anti-islam video, which was a lie. the former cia director said he didn't know who removed the reference from the original talking points. petraeus made mentions of military groups and was replaced with the word extremist, but was not aware of which agency had done that. >> talking points were specific about the affiliations and the terrorist activities. they didn't have it in front of them. whatever the process is, it was unclear and it was taken out. >> is this the smoking gun or the smoking cannon or the smoking room? the fact that it would changing they would say it is to hide -- to not let the terrorists know that we knew. is that legitimate? >> that could be well -- >> it is a legitimate point, but is it right? >> no. shear what petraeus was i believe was trying to point out, and there are two issues with his testimony. at least as we know. it it has been discussed anonymously and we don't have the details. but when the cia gathers information out in the field, it is just raw
of president obama in the past. in your book you said the obama administration has sent contradictory messages and bringing into question the level of support for israel. many palestinian leaders believe they can get their state without offering any concession of their own. are you still, sir, as critical of the president saying hamas needs to stop the attacks? >> i said it very clearly in the past. president obama made very few mistakes coming to cairo in 2009. it doesn't work that way. we have to speak in a different language in the middle east. i know yesterday that prime minister netanyahu spoke with the president and we have the support of the u.s. behind us, but too early to call. we have to see if we will act and go into the ground operation and then we'll know if the u.s. for now we have the support and grateful for the support, the technical support and we also see the technology that we're using to bring down some of the missiles. >> danny dennen deputy speaker of the knesset. thank you very much, sir. >>> coming up next hour, i'll talk with a member of the palestinian legislative co

altered his testimony about benghazi because members of the administration or someone knew about this affair and effectively blackmailed him to tailor his testimony about benghazi so it would suit the obama administration? >> no. i don't think so. you have t to know david petrae. he would not have done that. in fact, i would suspect that if somebody had tried to black mail him or influence him a certain way, he would do the exact opposite anden come out and let everyone know. he's testified before congress numerous times. i was with him during five of those times, and he will tell it straight forward the way it is based on the information he has at that time. we know truth changes over time a little bit as you get more information. >> so you think that's what's happening now, he's just finding out more through the fog of war about benghazi? >> well, i think over time more and more information becomes available. i wasn't at the testimony yesterday. i don't have the need to know or the clearance to know any more, and he wouldn't have told me exactly what he said anyway because he d

in the region. u.s. dealing with north korea, syria, iran. so this is part of the overall effort by the obama administration to continue pushing this refocus or this pivot is the word they like to use to asia. we saw last year, at the end of last year when the president did an asia trip and australia announced that u.s. troops, marines, would be going to that region. that was part of the defense component of this. they also see great benefits both domestically in the u.s. but also in this region. the president has talked about how trade in this region could lead to jobs at home. so these are some of the issues that the president will be addressing, but perhaps first and foremost we'll be talking about the push for democracy across the region and how thailand can play a role in that, victor. >> so myanmar is next. is that a bit controversial? >> reporter: well, it is. i mean this is a big moment because it's first time that a u.s. president has gone to myanmar, also known as burma. it is a country that has been closed until recently. about two years ago we've seen this sort of movement to refo

security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't there more security in libya previous -- previous to these attacks? >> well, first of all, assessments from the ground apparently were not getting back to washington, were not getting high enough. that compound was under surveillance by the local services. benghazi itself is a jungle. all sorts of islamic groups. somebody should have raised the red flag early on and either fortified that consulate or simply closed it. somebody made a mistake. i don't know who that was, whether it was the state department or the cia or the combination of the two. but they probably, in the loit of today, they should have pu pulled out a long time ago and run all these operations -- >> just going on to topic number two, did the obama administration try to mislead us as to the nature of the attack? we all heard what susan rice said. republicans say sh

to the intelligence assessment. >> general, we have the gop still suggesting that the obama administration concealed the fact benghazi was a terror attack for political reasons. from what we have learned from general petraeus's testimony, doesn't it seem the administration held back information, if they did so it was because a genuine national security concern existed? >> well, you know, my take on this, alex, this is centralist political posturing inside washington. the problem was we had inadequate ground security there. that's a state department function, not cia. when the thing went bad we had this am bass do, bilingual in arabic, he shouldn't have been there. that was the problem. but -- characterized the mob was minutiae for good next sakes. libya is a mess. there's no government, no army. it's not a success. probably better than having that monster gadhafi and his family in charge of it. but that's the problem. they have to get their eyesight up. we've got a war in afghanistan going that's running us $6 billion a month and several hundred killed and wounded a month. and here we're focused on

he's convinced that rice is part of an obama administration cover-up over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. mccain articulated his theory this morning, pledging to do everything he can to stop rice's nomination from moving forward. >> susan rice should have been known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she would have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> and of course, mccain has enlisted reinforcements. here's comes senator lindsey graham of south carolina who is also questioning rice's credibility. >> i don't trust. the reason i don't trust her, because i think she knew better, and if she doesn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> this afternoon, the president smack them both down. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> today's repudiation of mccain's
on and on about the different gifts the obama administration had given to different couldn't constituents. he said quote, free contraceptives were big with young college-aged women. it struck me, because they said the democrats are reducing women to abortion and birth control. women are much more than that. apparently in the analysis after the fact, mitt romney believes that women just voted because obama was going to give them free birth control. they should have just sent out condoms and birth control. much more effective. >> obama is doing good giving out phones. >> look, whatever you think of the substance of this, and i will say that there's a little truth in here in that democrats did not promise free stuff, and that i don't think that's why people voted for obama. people voted for obama because they liked him, and they believed that his policies are going to work in a second term. democrats certainly did threaten that republicans were going to take a lot of their stuff away. so you could find some truth in there, but i will say never a good idea to blame the electorate. never a good idea to
